Nobody. Guitar low skill ceiling xaxaxa
Gilmour is among my top5 favourite guitarists, Hendrix is not.
Most skilled? or just popular?
No particular order but I think David Gilmour tops it
Christopher Arp - Psyopus
Dean Lamb - Archspire
Lucas Mann - Rings Of Saturn
Chuck Schuldiner - Death
Dimebag - Pantera
Eric Wagner - Gatecreeper
Martin Knopfler - Dire Straits
Funkiest guitarrist in 2019
Alex Lifeson is quite underrated
Guthrie Govan, obviously. Honorable mention goes to John Petrucci, but Govan just kicks everyone else's ass. Out of those two I'd go with Hendrix simply because of how influential he was overall to guitar playing, but both of them are pretty appalling compared to the modern virtuoso players from an objective viewpoint.
Mateus Asato> all
IMO he is the best so far at the moment.
trevor rabin, allan holdsworth
Jimi Hendrix is the most skilled one. He do solo even with his fricking tongue.
But Yavuz Cetin is the best guitarist for me.
I was the best in my school if you are talking about Guitar Hero 3
Impossible to say. There are just different styles after all if we arent talking about rhytmic precision and playing perfectly on the note.
To name some others legends in the category of "best"
Paco De Lucia
Vincent McAllister (props if you know him without wikipedia)
Carlos Santana, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson are up there, the most famous ones are definitely not the best, there are probably better guitarists, but even less famous then the 3 listed above.
Most skilled would be Buckethead
Yngwie Malmsteen for virtuosy
Jhon Petrucci for his untouchble perfect technique
Michael Batio for his speed and natural talent (at 14 he was playing faster than 90% of guitarist of the world).
Eddie Van Halen for his technique in older times and also his charisma and ability to perform in front of the public jumping and doing shit.
Idc about technical skill his riffs look most influential for me
Django Reinhardt... hello?
